    That might be because according to the broad definition (emphasizing pace, action and suspense), if you don't describe a book as a thriller, the implication is that it's slow, hardly anything happens and it's really not much of a page-turner. Which isn't much of a sales pitch.

    When we're done with 'thriller', btw, can we move on to 'upmarket'?
